Salmon Fishing on the Yemen


I finally watched the long awaited movie Salmon Fishing in the Yemen and wasn't disapointed. The Shiek who is somthing of a visionary wants to make his dream a reality by building a river in the desert and stocking it with salmon where everyone can fish together! Its a completely wild and whacky idea. Along the course of the story a series of intriguing twists and turns happen and the idea becomes a 50million pound sterling project! The film draws together an interesting story of romance, dreams coming true, change, desruction and humanity.

One of my favourites lines from the movie: "Faith is the cure that heals all troubles. Without faith there is no hope and no love. Faith comes before hope, and before love." (Sheikh Muhammad ibn Zaidi bani Tihama).
